The Things You Find on the Street

As most of you may have already guessed, I'm all about entertainment. Whether that means being entertained or entertaining people myself, it doesn't matter. It's all about having a good time, being silly, enjoying yourself. You usually don't have to look too hard to find amusement. It's all around you. Just like a good photo opportunity. I can never pass up a good photo op. Nope, those are all around me too. I'd rather have a disc filled with random photos than blank nothingness. Nothingness does not entertain. Every day on our adventures we look for new and interesting things that we can use for our viewing pleasure. Like signs. Love 'em. Highly entertaining. Some signs are just old clippings recycled for fun. I'm in. Pose, smile, click. Others, well, the ones that aren't supposed to be funny, those are even better.

I've also learned not to waste an opportunity. There have been too many times in the past where I've wanted to do something and I've worried how it might look. Now, I'm all about what I want to do and I don't care how it looks. That's right people, I've said it. It's all about me. Just in case you didn't hear that I'll say it again. It's all about me. And the fun. Don't forget that part. It's always all about the fun. Quite often people forget to enjoy themselves. They worry too much. So relax people and take in the sights. They're all around you.

We met some friends at a bistro in L.A. over the weekend. Had a great time. We always do. After we left, we were walking down the street and saw this little gem of a sign. Really? Best meat on a stick? Award winning food and yet the sign had to brag about the meat sticks? I couldn't pass this up. I've been known to get in trouble for taken pictures. Yes, I've gotten yelled at before. I wasn't sure if this restaurant would be too keen on me snapping pictures of their excellent promo but I didn't care. I was throwing caution to the wind. I took my chances and got down on that sidewalk. Mike captured me and the meat sticks in our glory. It was a double win. For me, because I got my picture. For the meat sticks well, you can read how they favored.

Always be on the lookout. You never know what you'll find. And when you least expect it, those little beauties will fall right into your lap. And I'll be there with my camera.
